Today is a good day

Went to the grocery store with my caseworker and got plenty of food. Got some special treats for fall. I told her about how I'm struggling to clean my apartment. Well I just got off the phone with her and she told me that my entire BHH team is coming over on Tuesday next week to help me clean! It's gonna be awesome, everything will be clean and organized. I won't be evicted. I'm so excited for this to happen.

Looking at my last year..

Here lately I've struggled with my anxiety. I feel like I'm barely keeping my head above water trying to function with a so called normal life everyday. My boyfriend did so.ething really cool the other day. He got a poster board and listed all of our accomplishments since we had been together. It felt really good to see how much I have done for myself in under a year. I completely changed the direction my life was going, I'm able to leave my home, I finally got a job after 7 years, took care of all my legal issues, got into therapy, started taking care of my body, and about to finally be able to legally drive so I'll be purchasing my first car. I'm so proud of myself! And to anyone who feels like giving up on themselves, I've been there, but a year ago when something left me heartbroken, I told myself, well you can continue to feel helpless or you can make sure you always put yourself first, because counting on someone else has just made things worse. It's been really hard, but every time I started to slip off my path I'd see notes I'd written to myself on mirrors and slips of post its in a room at home reminding me to check in with myself and make sure I was still prioritizing my mental health. Don't give up! #CheerMeOn #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder

I walked 2 miles today and I'm exhausted

I got my SSI payment yesterday so I decided to go to the dollar store for cheap cigarettes. I got out of the store and was exhausted. I took a break from walking and smoked a few before continuing to walk. It's not often that I feel good enough to do it but today I felt ok. Now I have cigarettes. I forgot to get food. I had my food stamps card with me. I'm not the brightest crayon in the toolbox. But I feel ok with it.

Now I'm gonna just relax and make something to eat in an hour or so. I don't know what to eat. Maybe I'll make a breakfast sandwich.

When or where do you feel like your most authentic self?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the moments when I feel my best. I want to not only cherish those moments more, but also create more opportunities to be that version of myself.

For me, I feel like I’m my most authentic self when I’m home with my family, when I’m being creative or creating something, or when I’m sharing my mental health journey. I feel safe and calm in those moments.

What about you? When or where are you your best self?

Everybody need someone, or something.

I need a cat to cheer me up and soothe the day, and he just need a galon to rely on.

Have an easy day my friend...
